A series of nested numerical grids provide predictive data for the 10-day nearshore map forecasts. Forecasts refresh daily at 3-hourly intervals.
NOAA wave models forecast wave heights at the global, regional and (higher resolution) nearshore transformation models.
We’ve added an a deeper layer of modeling developed by the US Army Corps of Engineers.
The animated maps are reminiscent of the Swellwatch and Wetsand maps. (The colors represent the relative wave height OR period along the shoreline)
“As an avid Southern California scuba diver I find these maps invaluable for planning my diving days.
The easy to interpret interface and the accuracy make this site a dive planning must have. The “blues” don’t get us divers down! The darker the better for us 😉.
Thank you Surfable & SURFERforecast”
“Great Forecasts. Have enjoyed your surf reports”
“As an environmental professional that spends a lot of time on the water boating/diving and surfing, I haven't found anything as good as the maps``
“Helpful to see the nearshore swell heights at my local spots in San Diego.``
